O Mosque, O Mosque!

O Mosque, O Mosque!


O Mosque, O Mosque, O sacred place,
O Mosque, O Mosque, center of grace.

Your minaret, from which light abounds,
Sends forth your meaningful sounds.

With a hundred counsels you invite us,
To hasten towards Allah’s forgiveness.

Hasten for the prayer-food of sages,
Time of ascension and flying through ages.

Hasten in my direction the prayer, the prayer,
The best work is prayer so honest and fair.

O Mosque, fair guide of the human race,
The sound from you is the sound of faith.

A tent of light on dark, dark land,
A cool canopy on hot, scorching sand.

Over our heads, you, kind neighbor,
Our citadel in times of danger.

Holy cradle of heart, soul and faith,
Of me and Allah, a meeting place.
